Explosive in the open court
Finishes well in the lane
Good on-ball defender
Above-average rebounder for his position
Has to improve his shot mechanics
Relies too much on his athleticism
Poor shot selection
Has to be more vocal on both ends of the court
Doesn't always compete on the defensive end
JD has two elite and very unique skill-sets, he's typically the best athlete on the floor when he plays and he has great vision as a passer. He is a great finisher in the lane above & around the rim. He is also very explosive in the open court, you don't want to allow him to get going downhill. He is also very good in drive & kick action. He is strong and athletic enough to defend the 1 & 2 and some 3 if you're in a pinch. If he continues to work on his jump-shot, his defensive awareness, and his vocal leadership, the sky's the limit for him.
UC All-American - Atlanta, GA - 3/31/2019
Quick and shifty off the bounce, gets into the lane and finds his teammates great vision! Can shoot it off the dribble from the 3pt line.
OTR The Opening ? Atlanta, GA ? 6/27/2020
Makes nice reads coming off PnR action to find his teammate rolling to the basket. Recovers on the defensive end to block a midrange jumper pushes in transition and makes a great pass off the dribble. Draws foul on a transition layup attempt. Has better vision than I thought he did, very elite passer. Great sequence as he jumps the passing lane under the basket, catches it in the air turns and makes a halfcourt pass with one hand on target to a teammate.
